Thirteen years ago, the cult classic The World Ends With You (JPN: すばらしきこのせかい Subarashiki Kono Sekai trans. It's a Wonderful World) released on the Nintendo DS in Japan to critical acclaim. It has spawned an iOS/Android remake in 2012 with a special teaser featuring a brand new character hinting towards a continuation of the series, a now-defunct free-to-play mobile game, a Nintendo Switch port in 2018 that added a brand new chapter called "A New Day" which further teased a continuation of the TWEWY franchise, and an anime coming in 2021.
Despite the countless album releases with brand new remixes of classic hits, an abundance of new merchandise, even the formation of a band named after the infamous Def Märch (JPN: Death March) from the game, the announcement of the next installment continued to elude us.
That is, until now.
Square Enix has announced NEO: The World Ends With You for release on the Nintendo Switch and PS4 in Summer 2021.
